for a show of hands, how many in the audience most of the people from the atlanta area were not aware that the stated of georgia had a drought plan and three hands went up. there is a case where they developed a drought plan but it was never implemented as it became wet. so it sat on the shelf until people were unaware. >> some people are unaware too the meteorological droughts in in the agricultural the agricultural droughts of the maaco oh we have gotten some rain and we have been doing okay for the last 30 days and we are fine when that is not the case. >> i think it's important going back to roger's definition to start with, droughts are the extended period of the efficiency of precipitation can be exacerbated by high winds and high temperatures and low relative humidity and so forth. so it's this combination of intensity and duration but the real key is the fact that the intensity and duration over period of time begins to impact on the environment and on people and so that's when you get into agricultural drought, to hydrological drought and there's another type of drought somet

an atlanta and the ability to have more than 10 rounds, but to have somebody like you, chief johnson, meet them when they come to the door. that is the best way to do it. my good friend joe biden, who i have spirited conversations about a lot of things, was talking to somebody in california who mentioned the fact, what if there is an earthquake out here and there is a lawless situation? in 1992, you have the riots in los angeles. you could find yourself in a lawless environment in this country. the store was about a place called koreatown. there are marauding gangs going through the area burning stores, looting and robbing. the vice-president said in response to me, he said, no, you would be better off with a 12 gauge shotgun. that is his opinion, and i respect it. i have an ar-15 at home and i have not heard anybody and i do not intend to, but i would be better off protecting my family if there was law-and-order breakdown in my neighborhood. i do not think that makes me and on reasonable person. mr. trotter when you say you speak on behalf of millions of women out there who believe an ar-

based in atlanta is the main agency of the federal government and in the world who doesn't disease tracking. they have capabilities of determining the relative percentage of visits and different types of clinics throughout the country that are related to what we call influenza-like influence -- and this is. they do testing among them to determine if it is influenza or another type of respiratory infection. what they have shown from the very beginning all of all of this is that we're having an upsurge in the number of percentages of visits that are related to influenza-like illness, and when you examine that, they successfully identified what kind of influence that it is, and they know really what this strain is. that is important. one of the things in this massive relatively sobering news is the good news is the influences strain circulating throughout society in the united states are very well matched to the vaccine that has been distributed, and that is a very powerful all demand for getting vaccinated against it, even though we are into january, it is not too late to get vaccina

. it is far worse atlanta the bill that he tried to, sort of, tried to pass a week or so ago. it is far worse for republicans but i think it is interesting in one respect it is an element of leadership. he is saying you guys vote for this or whatever, he could say hold the bill up and -- he could stop it. i don't think he is going to do that. part of the reason i don't think he's going to do it because 90% or 89 votes in support of it. that would suggest this way this town is constructed right now that is overwhelming support. he would not look that good if he would single-handedly stop something like that. in that respect i do think conservatives can shea this is leadership on his part. he will get some kind of speakership re-election with the caucus. on the other hand, he has been even handed about this stuff and i don't think -- there are a lot of complaints among the conservative members of the house, you can't say he's been -- he really hasn't been -- he has not given them a lot of trouble. he tries to give them what they want. i think a lot of conservatives may view him as the best poss

, the nation, not atlanta, >> that would be taking cyberwar to a new -- >> as the russians tanks crossed the border into georgia, simultaneously cyberattack hit georgia. and knocked out its telecommunications, its banking, connectivity to the outside word. you're right, cyberwar will probably always be part of a larger war. and cyberwar i think will only happen when a nation going to go to war anyway. no nation going to say, i have a new chinese cyberweapon. let's go out and go to war see if it works. we have had nuclear weapons since 1945, nine nations have them. no one has used one since 1945. so if the united states and iran get into a shooting war next year, which is highly possible, they'll probably -- there will probable be a cyberdimension to it. >> i won't talk about the united states' role and who is doing or might do cyberwar to whom. the united states is obviously not an innocent bystander in all this. you mentioned it's practiced if one supposes a degree, has a degree of cyberwar capability. who else, who are the superpowers of cyberwar? >> well, the c.i.a. says there are bet

yesterday, you can certainly watch atlanta good morning, what kind of work do you do? caller: i'm in the mental health field. each level of the patients have had different mental health issues. and i have really been waiting for this issue to come up, because that's what concerns me the most. i have worked with people that have multiple personalities. we have been scared to death. they pick beds up. they have tremendous anger in there. i don't think they get the proper care that they need. and after a while, they're released and that is something that i'm really concerned with. it's not about who is able to get a gun, who is able to have a gun. that's not the issue right here. the issue is that we have to start dealing with people with mental health issues. i have worked in a vietnam hospital. i have worked with people with ptsd. one guy on the floor, he wabdel weighed 120 pounds soaking wet and had 10 personalities. and no one could stop him. and i cannot imagine that guy being out on the streets and able to carry a gun. and if -- host: do you know if he was a gun owner? caller
